  • Thanks. Having a cell is so convenient. I just need to give Rick a call and let him know I am going to be late to meet him.
  • 手機啊是很方便.你看,你現在快要遲到了,有手機就可以打電話告訴 Rick,否則啊他會以為你不來了呢!
  • (Larry makes phone call) Hey, Rick, it's Larry. I'm running a bit late. I'll meet you at the library in about half an hour. OK? See you then, Bye! Thanks, Li Hua, here's your cell back.
  • 嘿,你說你半小時就能到圖書館見 Rick?哎,那你就快走吧!對了, Larry,你不自己也有手機嗎?
  • I am embarrassed to say my apartment is such a mess that I can't find my cell. I am sure it is there somewhere under a pile of clothes.
  • 你找不到你的手機啦?沒錯,肯定啊是埋在你那堆衣服裡了.沒問題,今晚啊我給你手機打個電話,你聽到鈴聲就知道手機在哪兒啦。
  • Right, when my cell starts ringing, I'll be able to find it. I'll just follow the sound of the ring. Good idea!
  • 好,那你把你手機的號碼給我,我啊輸入我的手機裡,今天晚上我就可以給你打電話啊。
  • Okay, it is 5-5-5-2-3-4-5. I already have your cell number programmed into my phone, Li Hua.
  • 哎,Larry 啊,我得用一下我的手機, Mary 給我留了話,不知道她找我做什麼?
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • So, what was the call about? Give me the 411.
  • 啊~,你在說什麼奇怪的東西啊?什麼是 give me the 411?
  • You know you dial 411 to reach the information operator, right? Well, when I said "to give me the 411," I meant for you to give me information just like the operator gives you the number you are looking for.
  • 對呀,要查電話號碼我們就打 411,然後他們就會把你要的號碼告訴你.所以,你說「give me the 411」,意思就是要我告訴你 Mary 打電話給我有什麼事. Mary 是問我想不想參加明天晚上在她家舉行的讀書會。
  • Hmmm....I don't know Mary. What is the 411 on her?
  • 喔,你要知道有關 Mary 的情況啊? Mary 她人很好,也很用功.你想不想跟我去參加明天的讀書會嘛?這樣你就能見到 Mary 啦!
  • I'd really like to meet Mary, but I've been invited to a party tomorrow evening.
  • 你明晚要參加一個 party?什麼 party 啊, give me the 411?
  • One of the guys I work with - Fred - has been given a big promotion. He has invited several of us from work to meet him at a pub to celebrate.
  • 哦~,你的朋友被提升要請你們去慶祝.這個 party 聽起來很棒哎! Larry,我能跟你一起去嗎?
  • Sorry, Li Hua. According to the 411 I have, this is a co-workers only event. Fred wants to express his thanks to the people that have helped him at work.
  • 哼啊~,只有同事才能參加啊.好吧.對了,這個 Fred 是個什麼樣的人呢? What is the 411 on Fred?
  • He's a great guy. Oh, Li Hua, I've got to go! I've got to meet Rick at the library. I'll give you more 411 on Fred some other time.
  • 你下回可別忘了告訴我有關 Fred 的情況喔。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到兩個常用語.第一個是: cell,也就是「 cell phone,手機的簡稱」.另一個常用語是: the 411,意思是「有關某人或某件事情的信息」。
